might say, which is funny and the reaction i liked in my book, senior european goldman sachs guy who i quoted my book sent me an e-mail saying he had rented and i have been the e-mail with trepidation because i thought was going to say. he said something. i'm paraphrasing. i've just read your book, terrifying. i think i'm going to have to move to sweden. so when you even have the goldman sachs guy, and the swedish model is the only one that works. that says something. >> thank you. >> i'm not sure i know how to phrase this question. did you see any difference between the people that did create something? like bill gates and the guy from apple. as compared to the people who i just called paper manipulators, is there any difference in their attitude? i mean, bill gates i don't think behaves as though he's an entitled person, but i don't know him personally of course. he's doing a lot with the money that is good. i don't know the people on wall street. >> of course there are differences and certainly what i found quite an was to talk to any of these guys in each one will say in the abstra

is the author of "money and power, hold goldman sachs came to rule the world." the labor department came out with the applications for unemployment aid saying it fell sharply for the last week and stocks basically opened flat this morning as we've seen. some of that has to do more with europe than it does with washington. but what is your reasoning for why wall street hasn't displayed more of an impact from this fiscal cliff nonsense? >> thomas, what wall street hates most of all is uncertainty and it's counterintuitive, there's actually plenty of certainty now. what's going to be certain is taxes are going up. either we go off the cliff or the curb and then taxes rise for everybody and then maybe they get repealed for the middle class and others or we reach a deal and taxes go up for the wealthiest 2% and everybody else breathes a sigh of relief. there's some $2 trillion in cash sitting on the balance sheets of corporate america waiting to be put to work. the reason it hasn't been put to work is because of uncertainty. taxes are going to go up, the deficit is going to be reduced, some of th
